Microsoft reminds us about new Microsoft Store rewards program, “Microsoft Earn”

We reported last year on a new rewards program that Microsoft was beta-testing in the U.S. states. Called “Microsoft Earn,” the program allows participants to earn credits toward purchases at the Microsoft Store by spending at a variety of other retail outlets and restaurants. This morning, the company sent out email messages reminding some lucky folks of the program, and we thought we’d pass the reminder along to our readers.

Here’s a description of Microsoft Earn:

Enroll for free and get rewarded

Introducing Earn, a new and free way to Earn Credits when you dine and shop at the places you love. You can then apply your credits to receive discounts toward anything you purchase at your local Microsoft Store or Microsoft Online Store*

And for a limited time, receive $10 in bonus Earn Credits with your first transaction, so enroll now!

Grab a latte in the morning. Earn Credits. Fill up the car. Earn Credits. Go out to lunch with friends. Earn Credits. Get a ‘brain freeze’ in the afternoon. Earn Credits. Pick up groceries on the way home. Earn Credits. There are thousands of places where you can Earn for free, towards hundreds of products you want.

*Earn Credits are only received for transactions at participating merchants in Arizona, Massachusetts, and Washington, and only apply to purchases made at the online Microsoft Store and local Microsoft Stores in Arizona, Massachusetts, and Washington.

The program hasn’t rolled out beyond the original three states, and so it appears it’s still in beta. Nevertheless, if you’re one of the lucky folks who live in the right region, then get on over and sign up. There’s not much to lose, and some nice credits towards Microsoft Goodies to gain.
